Greeted by a very nice manager (they refer to him as the guest whisperer!!)and shown to our unit. He explained all the features of the room. The room had a queen size bed and a single bed with a trundle bed if needed. Very comfortable bed. It was very clean and tidy. It had a shower and vanity area, with... More

a very enjoyable and pleasant place to stay, we were greeted by the manager when we arrived who was friendly and helpful, as were all the staff. Our room was very clean and comfy, being a bit older having a good bed to sleep in was very helpful

We enjoyed our stay here and would certainly stay again. The room was cosy with the thermal heating (so much so we had to turn it off at night) and we loved the spa. The only constructive criticism we have (which we fed back to the staff) relates to the accessibility of the spa. We stayed in a designated wheelchair... More

Totally enjoyed our stay at this motel. We arrived later than our expected arrival time and it was quite cold so it was nice to enter a warm room. The bed was very comfortable and the spa was welcoming. Recommend this motel to any traveller or people on holiday. Welcoming receptionist also very helpful.

Hi JB, Cold outside, warm inside! Our thermal heating certainly has no problem keeping our rooms cosy in winter. We also have thermally heated water which in effect is endless and rather handy as every room has the same self fill spa as your room had. The joys of living in a thermal wonderland. :-) Thanks for your positive review.... More

This is a very popular place with many accommodation choices but the Arista Capri offered an extremely large, comfortable and very quiet room with a magnificent comfortable bed, great pillows and a well equipped kitchenette. Wendy the relief manager was very helpful and offered very good tourist advice and couldn't have been more friendly and efficient.

Hi Sue, Isn't Wendy wonderful! I will pass on you nice comments to her, she will be stoked. We are happy you enjoyed the bed as we have invested in the best, "top of the range" bed available from the commercial Sleepyhead range, as we know a good nights sleep is utmost. Thanks for choosing an Arista property and we... More
